Breathtaking drone footage shows the stunning landscape of Europe’s largest glacier, which covers nine per cent of Iceland

A drone has captured breathtaking footage of Europe’s largest glacier.

Italian photographer Stefano Tiozzo, 33, filmed a series of unique aerial images of the Vatnajökull glacier in Iceland throughout February 2019.

It is the largest ice cap in Europe by volume and at its deepest point it is 1,000 metres (3,280ft) thick.

The glacier displays several ‘tongues’ – parts where the ice stretches from the core into the Icelandic tundra.

Stefano, who lives in Moscow, Russia, said: ‘Seeing the glacier from above gives you an idea of its sheer size.

‘This was the second year in a row that I visited Vatnajökull, which is receding fast due to rising temperatures.
